2015 send off

Tonight's the night!!! Bring on the sparky get ups, metallic make up and champagne showers (ok, maybe hold the showers.) For my last #ramaholiday post I wanted to end with a bang. Literally...a confetti push pop! I bought this little Club Monaco set a few months ago thinking I'll wear a few times but have surprised myself with it's versatility. I've been wearing it as separates instead of together but what better time than NYE for fun, sparkles on sparkles??? The more, the better tonight. Same goes for makeup! Take full advantage of being able to do whatever the hell you want tonight. Click through to learn how to get my silverly eye look and messy side swept hair! Thank you for reading and happy new year!!!

starry eyed and wine stained

Wine mouth seems like it'd be embarrassing and avoided at all costs, amiright?? Alas it's quickly become a go-to holiday beauty look poppin up all over blahgs, instagram, pinterest, tumblr and the rest of the interwebs. For the second to last #ramaholiday look (ummm I can't believe December is over what??) Crystal showed me how to embrace wine stained lips and gave me cool girl hair to match. I'm a big believer in keeping things simple when it comes to dressing, so what better NYE dress alternative than a chic little romper?! If you haven't realized it yet...I'm obsessed with stars printed on everything so this crepe one piece is a winner. Unfortunately I waited to post these photos too long so it's sold out everywhere :( BUT I included some cute alternatives at the end of the post.  Since it's actually chilly in LA now, bare legs are an evening no-go unless you want to be THAT girl shivering in the corner of the party. I paired unexpected sheer dot tights with my trusty (and surprisingly comfy) Saint Laurent ankle boots for a NYE party look that'll keep me dancing and having fun without worrying about any wardrobe malfunctions or high heel discomfort.

pop fizz clink

With NYE just around the corner, it's time to start planning your look. I've never really been a "party dress" kind of girl (jeans and a sparkly top are typically the extent of my going out-look) but this year I thought I'd try doing the sexy dress route and man am I feelin myself. It's crazy how unexpectedly  sexy I felt slipping into a slinky little dress. I'm all about doing an unexpected look for evening...there's nothing worse then seeing four girls in the same exact dress as you. Hair & makeup also make a world of difference. For this look Crystal gave me a pretty rose gold cat eye and the perfect messy low bun I will now attempt to recreate on a weekly basis.

windswept af

For the third #ramaholiday look I tried out the lazy girl's going out look aka the miraculous jumpsuit. Ummmmm how have I not tried this before??! Jumpsuits are a game changer. Seriously. All you have to decide on are shoes and your jewelry game. So basically the perfect holiday party or really ANYday or night outfit.

shine baby, shine

So I've really gotten into the holiday spirit this year and in turn have a  sliiiiight obsession with metallics now. Enter: the metallic leather legging. When paired with all black, this legging is surprisingly easy to wear and gets all the compliments. At first glance in the store they seem waaay out of my comfort zone but once I thought of ways to style the options are pretty much endless. Who knew metallic leather could play as a neutral?

street sparkle

My favorite winter combo? Oversized knit with a fun little mini skirt. Add sheer black tights for perceived warmth. The perfect LA winter look...about 3 points for warmth but 1000000 for hella cool girl vibes. Not gonna lie, I got a little chilly shooting this look in NYC's 50 degrees so maybe not the look if you freeze easily. I personally like my legs and am more self conscious of my waist/stomach so I've always been a fan of pairing oversized on top with a straight mini skirt. It's a great way to de-girly a skirt and show off some leg. Anyone can pull off a sweater and jeans...a sweater and party skirt? Unicorn-rare. Now you can buy all the sparkly NYE party options you want with an ootd idea to take them into the daylight. I'm all about versatility and taking typical "night" pieces and making them wearable. Layers, people.

leather on leather on leather in new york city

Last month I was able to spend a few weeks in my favorite city and escape the LA heat. I was beyond excited to be able to layer and actually wear leather during the day. What better to pair leather pants with than a simple white tee and more leather? I felt a little over the top at first but felt all kinds of 007 cool after walking around. I actually ended up wearing the same exact outfit to the airport the following day. Nothing better than super soft leather, that looks chic and is low key comfy AF.

thankful for sweater weather

It looks like Thanksgiving brought the sweater weather to LA. FINALLY. Best way to wear a chunky oversized knit? Minimal effort: messy topknot, boyfriend jeans & literally the comfiest sneakers. I love how wearing a chic colored turtleneck instantly elevates an otherwise ridiculously casual outfit. The creamy color lends itself perfectly for day to night dressing. I mean...throw it over leather leggings with some ankle booties and you're ready for a dinner/movie date.  Click through to see more pics and also to shop my favorite under $100 sweaters. Because ain't nobody got time for expensive sweaters when your flight home for the holidays is pushing a grand. Ayyyyoooo.
